Broccoli Mushroom Burgers

Some call them patties or fritters, we call them burgers cause they really fulfill your cravings for any burger. Veggie burgers are usually made of chickpeas or beans. These green fellas are made of broccoli and mushrooms. It’s the broccoli that gives them the real bite and the mushrooms add a chewy feel like you experience when you eat a meat burger. Combine these two ingredients with onion, egg ( or an egg replacer, read further) herbs and spices and you’re almost done!

This broccoli mushroom burgers makes a perfect (hangover) lunch or diner. Eat it with salad, or place this juicy burger into a beetroot bun with spinach, avocado, lemon mayonaise and sweet potato chips aside. Yummy right? It’s filling, tasteful, nourishing, and most important super tasty and easy to prepare!

Best egg replacer for vegan burgers

If you’re vegan you’ll need to replace the egg. Eggs are binders that glue all the ingredients together and make perfect shaped burgers. Instead of the egg you combine one tbsp of ground flax seed with 3 tbsp of warm water. Let it sit for a few minutes until it gels and then add it to the mixture.
